Looks like it is coming along well.

The trick to cable management I find is to use all that spce which is not seen such as drive bays and behind the motherboard tray.

Take a look at my build log that I started recently. might give you some ideas

Thats a sata hdd, you should have got 4 thin flat cables with the motherboard these are for coonecting the hdd to the board.

As for the power button on the system header you may have to re arange the green wire for it to fit, it comes with a three pin connector but there are only two on the motherboard, you will need a pin or pen knife to lift the little flap and remove the green wire and place it in the middle hole next to the white wire

Alright I see now, thanks frost. The hard drive is plugged into the motherboard and power supply now.

All I need to do now is find a good CD/DVD-RW and maybe a useful device that can be put in the drive bay.

i think you should go with a core 2 duo rather than a pentium D

I already have the pentium D in my case so might as well stick with it.
